Bring on the learning revolution!

Creativity expert, Sir Ken Robinson makes the case for a radical shift from standardized schools to personalized learning -- creating conditions where kids' natural talents can flourish.

I certainly did enjoy the talk! Which part resonated with your spirit?


  1. This talk is great. I love Sir Robinson's stories.

    He has a point - are we killing creativity through our conventional, secular, and apperantly-"objective" primary and secondary schooling methods?

    This question is for the world, including both developed and developing countries.

  2. The dude is funny. I couldnt stop thinking about what kids have to go through these days in order to get admitted into some kindergarten schools:

    (Opening the resume and looking at the kid furiously!)

    "This..Is that it? What, you have got only this after 36.... MONTHS?"

  3. Hahaha @anon2

    The same thing happens at higher levels, when people need to get jobs. Expectations are ridiculous sometimes, and even non-applicable to the job at hand itself in some cases.

  4. Lol @anon2

    I wonder if TZ Kindergartens especially those in urban areas have such selection process.
